Calculating Rostered Days Off 

Calculating Rostered Days Off  Excel 
View Answers 
G'Day All,
Please refer to the attached spreadsheet as it should hopefully help in my rambled explanation of what i'm trying to do below.
I have a series of dates (not always beginning on a monday) to which I wish to calculate how many Sundays are being captured within that series. I don't always want to be calculating Sundays for every scenario so I'd like to be able to change this rostered day off and the entire function searches for that day, as opposed to a Sunday.
Each workbook (not worksheet) will only have 1 rostered day off, so if 1 workbook has the variable set to Sunday that will be perfect.
Any help in achieving this would be greatly appreciated!

Xtopher

I need a formula to calculate Turn Around Time. Find below the sample data and details for your reference.
Received Date & Time: 10/29/2010 3:27:00 PM
Completed Date & Time: 11/1/2010 3:57:32 AM
Business Hours: 08:00 AM to 05:00 PM
Non Business hours: 05:00 PM to 08:00 AM
Weekdays : Monday to Friday
Weekends: Saturday & Sunday
If I calculate TAT for this time period it should show me 1 hour 33 minutes, why because business hours are closing by 5:00 PM on 10/29 so it should not calculate duration after 5:00 PM to until 08:00 AM on next day, however 10/29 is Friday so formula should calculate the duration from 10/29 Friday 3:37 PM to 10/29 5:00 PM and again it should calculate from 8:00 AM on 11/01 Monday and formula should skip Saturday & Sunday.
In this scenario I have completed the task before 8:00 AM on 11/01 so it should show duration of 1hour 33 minutes.
Please let me know if you need any more details

Hello,
Please help!!!
We have a client who will pay using the 1/4, 1/2/ and 3/4 of an hour increments as follows:
From the hour mark to 6 minutes = 0 time paid
Over 7 minutes to 15 minutes = 1/4 hour 15
16 minutes to 30 minutes = 1/2 hour 30
30 minutes to 45 minutes = 3/4 hour 45
46 minutes to 60 minutes = one hour.
They work on shifts and the operation is 24 hours. Each gets 30 minutes for breaks which is not paid. Pay is biweekly and overtime is anything over 40 hours. Currently, the template we are using looks like this (sorry, I could not figure out how to paste it so you can see it in Excel layout):
WEEK 1 Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
5/16 5/17 5/18 5/19 5/20 5/21 5/22

I'm trying to come up with a solution to calculate the man hours and days worked over multiple sheets.
I have a file that has 8 sheets. the first seven sheets are the days of the week and the 8th sheet is where I want to calculate the hours.
The days of the week consists of "Name" "Date" Hours"
The 8th sheet consists of "Name", "Days of the week in their own column (7 columns in total)", "Total Hours" and "Total Days Worked"
Now... each day is always a different group and what I'm hoping for is to create a formula that can grab each name with their hours and throw them into the 8th sheet. So when the end of the week is done I have all the Employees weekly hours and days worked all finished.
I hope this makes sense. This file is to track about 100 employees that are on a rotational work schedule.
I have attached a sample file.
Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a spreadsheet where I need to calculate the increase in % one year over the other in column D for Eg if Profits are 95415 in Jan 2008 (Column B) and 80215 in Jan 2008 (Column C), then the % Increase will be (9541580215)/80215 *100
I can calculate the formula for this, but the problem comes where for eg there is a loss in Jan 2008 for 95415 and there was a profit in Jan 2007 for 80215. How do I set up formula to take negatives & positives into account in calculating the increase or decrease/

Is there a way to force Excel to stop calculating a formula?
Excel showing "Not Responding" and is grayed out. I've tried to use Task Manager to stop the application, but as soon as open up Excel it goes right back to opening the spreadsheets and starts calculating again. I have spreadsheets saved, so don't have to recover.
thanks...Dean

Good afternoon!
I'm working with Excel 2003 sp 3 on Windows xp.
I have been banging my head trying to jar loose the formula to calculate man days where 1 equals 8 hours. I have one that was given to me by a coworker:
=INT(Q3/8)+(((Q3/8)(INT(Q3/8)))*0.8)
That calculates man days from total hours. I need a formula that will total man days and return the man day answer. Example:
weekending 12/25 = 16.2 which is 16 man days and 2 hours
weekending 1/1 = 24.7 which is 24 man days and 7 hours
Total = 41 man days and 1 hour
I have also been asked if there was a way for a number to be entered into a spreadsheet and automatically put in order without a macro or "pushing a button".
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Happy New Year!

I need a formula to calculate overtime, after a work week of 40 hours.
for example: if an employee works 10 hours a day we would not count towards overtime until the employee completes a 40 hour work week.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

YV

I have a pivot chart with a bunch of data series, and every time we
include/exclude one of the series to see how the chart changes, all the
colors change and we have to spend time reidentifying which series is
which, using the legend to check the colors.
Is there a way to "lock" the colors, so that the bars stay the same colors
regardless of whether other bars are included/excluded?
Thanks!

Sale = A1
Cost = B1
Margin = C1
I know to calculate Margin its' C1=1(B1/A1) and to calculate Sale its, A1=B1/(1C1), and I can do that in separate columns. But...... I'm tasked with trying to find a way so that I can do it in three columns. As in if I change cost then margin recalculates or if I change margin then sale recalculates. I'm thinking that this is going to cause a circular error but my boss says there's got to be a way to do it, figure it out. Any suggestions?

I have a Workbook with 2 sheets, the first one is the data entry and the second one contains all the calculations and confidential info.
I have one staff member that does the data entry but I don't want them to see the 2nd sheet. I know I can hide the sheet then protect the entire workbook which does work, but is there an easier way so that the second person doesn't have to keep hiding/unhiding the 2nd sheet?
It would be perfect if when you tried to click on Sheet2, it asked for a password.

A previous poster explained what I also need; there were no responses,
so I thought I would try again.
Does anyone know of an Excel templateor a small standalone
programthat will calculate the interest/principal breakdown when
payments are varied in amount and frequency? Free or lowcost, please.
I need one that will work on my Mac/Office 2004. I will need to print
out periodic reports.
Here is the way the previous poster described it:
"Excel template: Loan Amortization for random/irregular payments,
figures days
between payment dates.
I have a loan with a variable beginning balance and irregular payments
with
annual large payment. (based on collections)
Would like to enter payment and date.
then Excel would figure days since last payment, interest amount,
principal
amount, Ending Principal balance.
And total interest paid, total pricipal paid
If I change the starting principal, excel would recalculate all
entries."
Thanks very much.

Hello,
I have two columns of data: column A contains the date and time in the form dd/mm/yyyy. Column B contains a number value. All the times are in order, so column A looks like:
01/01/2007
02/01/2007
03/01/2007
I have data from 2007 to 2010. I need to calculate an average daily value (in column B) for each month, and display it in column C. So, for January, I need to calculate the average of 31 days, February, 28 days, etc.
Is there a function I can use to do this? I've been trying the AVERAGEIF formula but can't get it to work. Any ideas would be much appreciated!
Many thanks,
Caitlin

On my calculator, if I divide 462,534.05 by 335 I get 1,380.70. Then if I times 1,380.70 by 335 I get 462,534.50. Which is what I need it to be because I need to calculate the difference of a figure not dividing equally.
On excel, if I divide 462,534.05 by 335 I get 1,380.70. Then if I times 1,380.70 by 335 I get the SAME result of 462,534.05.
I have to account for the difference of not dividing equally so there is some format or accounting function that's preset that I don't want but I have no idea how to fix it or format my excel sheet to calculate as my calculator would.
Please can someone help? Thanks!

I'm trying to format a worksheet to show how many days overdue certain tasks are, and running into a couple of issues. The sheet is set up with Due Dates in Column A, Days Overdue in Column B, and Date Completed in Column C. My first thought was just to use as simple a formula as possible in Column B =Today()A2. This worked alright for tasks that already had Due Dates assigned, but if Column A was blank I'd get a high number in Column B. I also realized that tasks will continue to show as overdue even after I enter the completedon date in Column C. Is there a relatively simple way to tackle this formula? Thanks in advance for suggestions. (I've attached an example with the column headings I want to use.)
I have a spreadsheet with simple (addition/subtraction) formulas. The file is quite large and the formulas are too. All of a sudden, the formulas stopped working except when I double click in the cell containing the actual formula. For example, if I enter "2" in each cell, A2 and B2, cell B3 should reflect "4" because there is a formula in cell B3 which totals cells A2 and B2. Only by double clicking on cell B3 will the program actually calculate. I'm totally perplexed and so is my IT contact. Anyone?
Is it possible to share a workbook with macros and have the macros work properly. I have one spreadsheet that needs to be shared by many users. We want to all be in the same document at the same time saving changes. The real catch is that the workbook has macros. I used the 'Share Workbook' function under tools. At the end of the setup, it told me that the macros would not work properly. The odd thing is that everytime I try to click on one of the macros I get an error, but yet the macro still performs the function. So essentially the macro works, it is just a pain because you have to click 'end' everytime on the error screen. Any suggestions?

Very new in this board. If I post this question in the wrong forum please bear with me.
There is about 20 staffs in our department and I have made a spreadsheet with 12 tabs for each month of the year JanDec. If each staff have 15 days annual leave each year and how can I make a formular that can automatically calculate the balance of annual leave and entered in the tabs of the following months. For example if staff A used 5 days in Jan how can the balance of 10days be entered in the tabs from FebDec. If he use another 5 days in July the remain balance of 5 days be automatically entered in the tab from Aug to Dec. Likewise if staff A took 2 days sick leave in Jan, and 2 days in Mar how can this sick days be automatically sum up in the months after. I am doing this manually at the moment and it is very time consuming and also very easy to make mistake.
Thanks and sorry for this long questions

Hello from sunny Madrid
I have created a complex formula to help me calculating Golf handicaps for players.
The formula is in the first cell and I want to drag the formula across to the right to cover the 18 holes.
But ALL the values change and I want some to change and some to stay constant.
How do I tell excel to drag the formula across but keep certain parts of the formula the same..ie ....=D11.... in the formula when dragged across doesn't go D12,D13;D14 in each cells formula and should stay as D11 for all.
Many thanks for your help
